Tripoli is an important city for commercial and manufacturing interests as well as banking, financial services and communications. The manufacturing industry produces textiles, constructions materials, processed food and tobacco. The city goes all the way back to the seventh century BC, and you can see some of this history at the Red Castle Museum, which forms a dramatic sight on the horizon with fountains, courtyards and relics from the Ottoman period. Medina, the old time, is a relatively unspoiled part of the city with a variety of traditional shops selling their leather, copper, gold and silver wares in the narrow streets and alleys.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe.
